Everything She Wants' Holiday Gift Guide Roundup

Everything She Wants comes across a lot of creative, charitable and indulgent beauty and style items  year-round.  And these are a few of my favorite things and picks for perfect holiday gifts.

Australian Scent Cleansers Delight Gift Set
Australian Scent: Founded by husband and wife team Eddie and Megan (he's an American boy and she's from Australia), Australian Scent is an organically crafted, paraben-free skin care line that sources raw, anti-oxidant ingredients like acai berry, almond oil, beeswax and carrot seed oil.  The products even come in recycled, biodegradable packaging.

The green gal or guy on your gift list will love the Cleansers Delight Gift Set ($130). Everything She Wants' readers get 20 percent off any purchase from Friday, Dec. 2 until Thursday, Dec. 8 by entering the discount code ESW20 at checkout.  In order to get the discount, simply create an account on Australian Scent's website.

Saachi by In-Things Marquis bracelets.
Saachi by In-Things: In-Things is a New York-based company that specializes in handcrafted jewelry, luxurious wraps and scarves, and embroidered shoes and jackets imported from India.  Many of the stoles and scarves are replicas of those worn by Indian royalty.  I especially love Saachi's beautifully crafted, colorful crystal Marquis bracelets ($39 each). Pick up one or two for yourself and the bling-lovin' girlfriend on your gift list.

Kumani Essentials: This beauty care line of hair, face and body products was founded by licensed esthetician Stacy Fader.  Kumani Essentials uses the natural anti-aging emollient, Shea butter, sourced from a fair trade cooperative in Burkina Faso. While Shea butter has been used in Africa for centuries, its use is relatively new in America. The line uses only 100 percent natural Shea butter -- untreated and unprocessed with chemicals -- so customers benefit from more of the ingredient's moisturizing, healing and anti-aging effects. Try the Kumani Shea-cation Travel Kit ($28).

Eau de Nous: Created by sisters Daya and Vally, Eau de Nous is an affordable new fragrance line "inspired by nature"and "defined by passion."  The everyday colognes -- Citrus Charm (a Self Magazine Fragrance Award winner), Bebe Breeze, Gardenian Gift and Jasmine Joy -- draw from the subtly sweet scents of nature.  To sample them all, pick up the Eau de Nous Fragrance Set ($48).

  1. I was thinking of buying products for skin care online as a gift. Now I am torn between that and the stuff from Australian scent.
